    Default Zimbra won't start after power outage

    The battery in the UPS died, we had a power outage, the machine crashed & our Zimbra installation won't start. The problem appears to be LDAP - ERROR - failed to start slapd - is the message.
    Zimbra log says
    Dec 22 15:20:41 mail zimbramon[8205]: 8205:info: Starting services
    Dec 22 15:20:41 mail slapd[8286]: @(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.3.21 (May 3 2006 10:23:20) $ root@build-fc4.liquidsys.com:/home/build/p4/CRAY/ThirdParty/openldap/openldap-2.3.21/servers/slapd
    It's a FC4 installation
    I've looked around for stray PIS files, etc with no luck
    TIA

    Default Old Zimbra -- Old OS?

    Does zmfixperms fix the issue?

    Default OK -- is that actually an error message?

    What you posted doesn't look like an error message. It just looks like an informative "LDAP is starting" message from a moderately old Zimbra install. Are there any error messages in the logs?

    And do you have a backup?

    Default

    The original error is
    LDAP - ERROR - failed to start slapd
    when LDAP tries to start.
    Which logs - the quoted is from syslog
    Yes I have a backup. What specifically should I restore - the whole /opt/zimbra directory?
